Lots of people grow epiphytic plants, but most of them are grown in pots, simply because that's the way we are used to growing houseplants. However, that is not the way most of these plants grow in nature. Though they might grow on rocky outcrops or even electrical and/or telephone wires, the vast majority will be found growing in trees. Why not mount some of your epiphytes, so that they grow the way they do in nature?

|Great article Ken. I have printed the article and will look around for materials. And I know from whom I can order the ferns. |

|That will give you a great reason to go out and explore, Mary. I bet you can find some really good wood for mounts (driftwood, perhaps?). Yep, you know where to go to get those staghorn ferns, or whatever other epiphyte you might like to mount. I am always just a "click" away! |
